#23: Taking My Life Back with Denis Murphy

Our guest is Denis Murphy, author, linguist, software engineer and podcaster from Ireland. At heart, he is a polymath. His many interests range from foreign languages to computer programming. He speaks 4 languages including French and he is currently learning Japanese. On his podcast, The Happy Mindset, he helps fellow polymaths to make sense of their many interests through solo episodes and conversations that explore human psychology, creative writing and what it means to lead a happy and fulfilling life. He discovered his love for creative writing after some mental health issues he experienced in his early 20’s. His first book is called Taking my Life Back.

➡ How psychosis helped him get on the right track in life and connect with his creativity and emotions

➡ The Importance of emotions - having emotional intelligence and self-awareness - over intellect in order to communicate, connect with people, make decisions, and create a vision in life.

➡ Why he wrote a book and how this process helped him grow even more from the experience he had

➡ Taking ownership over your life and how was this the tipping point in his healing  and growing from the experience and not going the other way, instead of depending on or blaming others

➡ Creating a balance between intellect and creativity in order to live your life aligned with your nature

➡ The link between curiosity and passion and how they often hide behind our fears

➡ The importance that honest human connection has on our mental health

➡ Why he sees critical thinking and emotional intelligence as the most important skills to learn in order to navigate life
